Divers are expected to search close to the shore of Prosser Creek, a 60-feet-deep reservoir near Lake Tahoe
At least three dive teams have reportedly joined the search for missing 16-year-old Kiely Rodni in northern California.
The teams will be searching close to the shore of Prosser Creek, a 60-feet-deep reservoir near Lake Tahoe, Fox News rapporterte.
Kiely was last seen around 12.30am on 6 August near the Prosser Family Campground in Truckee, where she attended an allegedly alcohol-fuelled gathering of more than 100 teens and young adults. An investigation was launched by the Placer County Sheriff’s Office the next morning after Kiely failed to show up for a hike with friends and no one could get in contact with her.
Law enforcement agencies have assigned K-9 units, aircrafts, boats and more than 260 personnel to canvass the areas surrounding the Prosser Family Campground. The case is being treated as an abduction because Kiely’s car is also unaccounted for.
Placer Sheriff’s Office public information officer Angela Musallam told Den uavhengige on Wednesday that her department and the Nevada and Washoe sheriff’s offices had conducted water searches in the area on Tuesday but said she could not confirm whether dive teams had joined the search.
FBI, Heimevernet, California Highway Patrol and several other local law enforcement agencies have joined the Placer Sheriff’s Office in the search for Kiley on the ground and air.
Samfunnet har også organisert flere letefester med et massivt oppmøte. På tirsdag, et tenåringsmøte fant sted i Tahoe City hvor tenåringer ble oppfordret til å avsløre informasjon om hva som skjedde under festen.
"Vi er ikke interessert i [etterforsker tenåringsdrikking], vi er bare ute etter å finne Kiely,fortalte offentlig informasjonsoffiser Angela Musullam Den uavhengige på mandag.
EN $50,000 belønning tilbys for potensielle kunder som hjelper med å finne Kiely. Venner av tenåringen har også startet en GoFundMe for å øke belønningen. Nesten $30,000 er hevet fra onsdag morgen.
